Some people prefer to read on the grass, on park benches, or with a nice landscape view. Us New Yorkers, we prefer to do our reading in dark tunnels, inches from a moving subway train.
Also taken at a nearby (or this exact) post, was this photo. Maybe I should do a series.
Given that it's a supremely cloudy day today, I don't think there will be any good Manhattanhenge photos taken. Manhattanhenge is when the sunset aligns with the east-west Manhattan grid. It occurs twice a year during the summer months.
Took me about 4 years to finally get this photo right along with the correct weather, so I'm going to post it for every Manhattanhenge until I get a better one, which I'm not sure I ever will. Especially with the airplane.

Any mothers out there feel like this? Any mothers not feel like this?
I found this to be a poignant moment, portraying the the burden on mothers in general. I found it interesting to see how the father and daughter were having such a great time playing together while the mother seemed to be doing all of the heavy lifting. You can even see it on her face.
For the fellow street photographers out there this image is a good representation of how you have to handle yourself to capture some moments. It wasn't just a lucky snap like a few of them are. I came across this family at the top of the stairs and halfway down the corridor, but instead of just taking a quick shot and moving on I decided to jog ahead of them and down the stairs to get into the right position. This way it was easier to get ready and pretend I was just waiting around so that they wouldn't notice me taking the candid shot.
Also, I figured that taking the shot after they carried the stroller down the stairs might be a good idea - and you can see that shown in the mother's face, which is really what ties the entire image together.
NYC headquarters since 1969. On East 3rd street between 1st and 2nd avenue.
You can see the ramps that go to each side door. I have seen the left door open a couple of times, once with a motorcycle in it. It looks like a small motorcycle garage for maintenance.

Of any cop positioned in any place in the world, standing looking out at the main connection hub of the Times Square subway station is probably the most important spot.
It's really getting scarier and scarier with people just being glued to their phones all day (of which I am a culprit).
